I prefer the "anna's version" too (not that anybody asked). It seems more readable.
also, curious about a ME[Space]SS version.
EDIT : after fiddling with the logo, I think I'd like to see a "ME[space]S[space]S" version
EDIT 2 : a quick mockup (It's just a roughly tweaked version of JacKc's logo) of a M[Slanted space]E[space]S[space]S, with breaked sub-text. Not to be used as-is, it's just to see how it goes.
I like the look from JacKc but I have some doubt about monoblock readability (same goes for the old logo). But don't get me wrong, it's just my very own personal opinion.
